FSX Gold and Win 8.1 DirectX Issues. HELP!!

Asked by shiffty11 on 02/11/2014 at 11:06 AM

I recently received a pretty good machine from work. See below for DxDiag info. I have the most recent windows updates and device drivers. After installing FSX Gold (without a hitch), whenever I try to launch FSX.exe, I get an error message saying "FSX Cannot run ... version of DirectX not compatible... Please reinstall v.9.0 by running FSX setup or".

Is there an easy fix to this?  My sensitive issue is I do not have admin rights on my laptop, but my IT dept is allowing for just FSX But everytime I want to make a change, I need to go to them. So a solution would be amazing!!

I so appreciate any help, and let me know if you would like to discuss a donation :)
